What a difference a week makes....bird wise that is! Somewhere along this past week one of the babies didn't make it.  Even though I spotted an intact egg in the nest, this was the only baby in the nest this morning.  It has almost all it's feathers and when I did get a shot of it with it's mouth open I could see in the center of his mouth this track of little ridges, it must be for traction on getting it's food down it's mouth.

While it's Momma sat in a nearby tree I heard the baby peep it's return call to Momma......She was fussing up a storm and the baby kept peeping and opening it's mouth to my camera.....now that it is sooo big I had a hard time getting a good shot up close and personal while trying to balance myself half on a ladder and half in a tree!......My poor neighbors! lol lol lol

Cute baby. We have a lot of those old dratted black birds. They often get the babies. They get on my bird boxes an look into them trying to find some eggs or babies that they can make a meal on. That may be what is happening to the babies. Helen

    All babies are precious. I'm sorry to hear that one was lost. Beautiful work.
